Questions to Acting RA Minister of Nature Protection Erik Grigoryan

On 23rd of November acting RA Minister of Nature Protection Erik Grigoryan presented a report on reforms and achievements in the sector over the past 6 months. Representatives of mass media and environmental NGOs, including the expert of Civil Voice NGO Silva Adamyan and the representative of Civil Voice NGO Naire Sahakyan were present at that meeting.

Acting Minister talked about a number of systemic improvements.

After the report, Erik Grigoryan answered to a number of questions. The expert of Civil Voice NGO Silva Adamyan also raised a number of issues available in the field. Mrs. Adamyan presented the opinion of a number of NGOs on making changes and additions in RA Law on “Information and Freedom”. NGOs demanded to hold public hearings concerning the above mentioned law and they're ready to take an active part in the public hearings, presenting proposals.

Silva Adamyan also touched upon the issue of Amulsar. She exhorted the acting minister not to allow the private companies discredit our experts and their works. She also touched upon the choice of international experts. Unfortunately, the Minister mentioned that until now these experts have not been elected. So Mrs. Adamyan added that the delay of the experts opinions creates a tense situation.
